The impact of digitization in container terminals – Presented by Jordi Arjona Aroca, Valenciaport Foundation

The impact of digitization in container terminals – Presented by Jordi Arjona Aroca, Valenciaport Foundation, at Cargo Innovation Conference which will take place on Jun 07, 2018, at Maaspoort, Venlo, The Netherlands.

During the last years ports, terminals and haulers have been walking at a steady pace towards full digitization. This has open a new range of possibilities to them and many are embracing the latest advances in fields like big data, IOT or cyber-physical systems, which are paving their way towards full automation. We will present the efforts Valenciaport Foundation is making in this regard, jointly with the collaboration of Valenciaport authority and terminal operators like Noatum. In particular we will introduce four European projects, SeaTerminals, INTER-IoT, Transforming Transport and Sauron, in four different areas: Cyberphysical systems, Internet of Things, BigData and Cybersecurity.
